Question plastic edging and side staking

I have a lot of edging to install between flower beds and lawn. Currently there is no edging and the bark from the flower bed constantly encroaches into the lawn. I am using heaving plastic edging. Someone suggested that I should use long metal spikes for anchoring instead of the plastic stakes that they recommend because of the cost of the plastic stakes.

I am in WI and there is freeze/thaw happening. I have heard from other people that the anchors do very little, although I don't want to save $50 today if it will ruin the look of my edging in a few years. Does anyone have any experience as to the usefulness of side staking plastic edging?

Talking Go for it!!

The only thing to be careful about using plastic edging strip is not to run over with a lawnmower or to wack it with a weedwacker.
It's a very durable and strong plastic; and most of all it's very affordable. I recommend using metal stakes due to durability and strength. Make sure the stakes are offset(meaning do not hammer them in straight down).
Good Luck!!
